For example, a worksheet may provide a data set of the number of hours students spend on homework each week and ask students to calculate the relative frequency of students who spend 0-1 hour on homework, 1-2 hours on homework, and so on.

To calculate relative frequency, students divide the frequency of a particular category by the total number of items in the sample. This gives them a proportion between 0 and 1, which represents the relative frequency.
